Guilford and Baptists Fight to
Scoreless Finish on Home Field
Quaker Defense Holds
Against Wake Forest
rums m ran sin
"" Putting up a great fight through
out the game, Guilford fought Wake
Forest to a standstill in the football
game on Hobbs Field, October 27.
When the final whistle blew, the
score showed that the two teams had
struggled up and down the field for
four quarters with nothing but ze
ros in the score column.
Only twice did Wake Forest ser
iously threaten to score. This was
just at the beginning of the game
when the Baptists had the ball with
in seven yards of the goal line and
again in the last minutes of play
when a good gain through the line
by Crutchfield and two completed
forward passes put the ball on Guil
ford's ten-yard line. Just here the
final whistle blew with 4he score
standing 0 to 0.
Although Guilford did not get as
near the goal line as did Wake For
est, twice she had a chance to score
on drop kicks by Johnson. Neither
time was he able to get the pigskin
across the bar but the attempt in
the second quarter missed only by
Both teams ttesorted principally
to straight football for their gains.
Wake Forest attempted a few for
ward passes in the latter part of the
game and was successful in two at
tempts. In the punting Guilford ex
celled, for Lassiter applied a heavy
boot to the pigskin. Both teams
punted often as they were unable
to gain ground.
The play swayed back and forth
on the field. In the first and third
quarters the Baptists forced the play
over on Quaker territory. However,
the Quakers retaliated by keeping
play mostly on the Baptist territory
in the second and fourth quarters.
The game opened with Guilford
receiving. Although the Baptists
started with a rush and forced the
play on Guilford territory, they were
unable to score, the Quaker lads
having pushed them back to the 35
yard line when the quarter ended.
The outstanding event of the second
quarter was Johnson's drop kick,
which came so near being success
Neither side was able to make any
gains in the third quarter and this
caused much punting. The last
quarter saw the Quakers make good
gains through the Baptist line, John
attempt another drop kick, and the
great spurt of Wake Forest which
carried her within ten yards of a
touchdown in the last minutes of
It was a great game. Guilford's
line was a tower of strength and ev
ery man in it deserves especial men
tion. Pringle and Warrick played
exceptionally well, both being quick
'n tackling. Big Babe Shore's smile
did not hinder him from being in
The game every minute.
The backfield men were all there
with their share of the work, too.
Purvis, however, proved himself a
human battering ram and plunged

GUIFLORD MEN LOSE TO
Till! TENNIS TEAM
OV ONE POINT MARGIN
Turrentine of Trinity Star
In one ol the closest tennis tour-j
naments ever witnessed on the local
courts, Guilford lost to the Trinity
net stars by a single point. So evenly
were players matched, that at the
end of the scheduled two doubles and i
four singles, the score was tied, each
team having won two singles and one
double. This necessitated the play
ing of another single in which Trni- j
ity nosed out the victory, thus taking
the tournament by a five to four
The most bitterly fought match
of the afternoon was the doubles
in which Merriman and Winn of |
Guilford defeated Turrentine and
Whisnant of Trinity in two straight
sets, 6-4, 6-4. Both of these double
teams are rated as lhe best of their
respective institutions. The second
doubles went to Trinity when Sum- j
mers and Brooks defeated Harris
and Reynolds, 6-3, 6-1.
In addition to the doubles, the fol
lowing single events were played, all
proving exceptionally interesting:!
Shore of Guilford defeated Summers j
of Trinity in three sets, 8-6, 2-6,6-1; !
Whisnant, Trinity, won from Rey
nolds, Guilford, by scores of 6-1, 6-3,
Joyce, Guilford, lost to Mayer, Trin
ity, 2-6, 2-6; Winn, Guilford, easily'
defeated Brooks, Trinity, in two
straight sets, 6-1. 6-0.
Turrentine, Trinity, was easily the
best player on the courts, while
Winn, Guilford, was the only player!
who did not meet defeat either in!
singles or doubles.
JUNIOR CLASS MEETS
That the class of 21 could live
up to the name of "jolly juniors'
was fully demonstrated at the class
meeting held Tuesday evening, Oct.
24. The program committee had
decorated students' parlor in real
Halloween style. Autumn leaves, J
dimmed lights, black paper witches |
swinging here and there and a bright |
open fire-place gave the desired ef
The few business items were!
quickly dispensed with and as the |
lass formed a semi-circle around the j
fire the spirits of ghosts and witches j
seemed to reign. Hair raising ghost j
'stories were told by several members.
To cut out a witch without scissors
or pencil was the next art attempted.!
Virginia Osborne proved to be the |
most artistic member in this line.
A real witch carrying the prover-!
bial broomstick came forth from a
dark corner and the boys proved
their gallantry by protecting their
shivering partners. They were soon
recovered enough to have their for
tunes told however. After this stren
uous experience they were able to do
justice to the finale, a bag of apples
and a box of marshmallows, toasted
over the open fiire.

was begun by Professor Anscombe

A few other games like "Aunt Je

After introducing the student vol

Paul Harrison, a famous brain sur

properly. Dr. Harrison overcame a
serious physical weakness and at the
same time prepared himself mental

his fame as a doctor spread not only
in Africa but in America.
John Anderson, who spent two
years at Wake Forest, .was referred
to as one who shared the ideas and
ideals of a student volunteer. While
in college, he was an untiring worker
among his fellow students. He shared
his purpose by speaking good words,
by requesting the reading of certain
books by his fellow students, and by

OTHER PROMINENT SPEAKERS
The fifth semi-annual convention
of the North Carolina Collegiate
Press Association met at Meredith
College, Raleigh, N. C., October 26-
28, with an attendance of over thir
ty at what was considered by every
one the most successful session in the
history of the association.
The convention was formally
opened by a speech of welcome by
President Alice Lowe of Meredith.
After the usual formalities Robert
F. Beasley, editor of the Goldsboro
News, gave the assembly what was
probably the best address of the
whole session. That Mr. Beasley
made an interesting talk is evidenced
by the fact that he held the atten
tion of the audience for one hour
and forty minutes without them rea
lizing the fact.
Mr. Beasley forcibly presented the
fact that journalism was composed
first of hard and incessant labor and
nothing more but a love for the work
would ever yield to the young
nalist a real success. "News," con
tinued Mr. Beasley, "is the unusual.
People like to open the paper and
see news that make them say 'Gee
Whiz'. ' This "Gee Whiz effect and
the combination of human interest
make a successful article. However,
every incident does not contain a
"Gee Whiz" effect and it takes a good
reporter to get news where there is
no news. There are three points
which the newspaper man must
have, ' Mr. Bailey said, "imagination,
sympathy and loyalty." Imagi
nation is a "nose for news,"
sympathy is an ability to understand
the views of others, and loyalty to
one's paper implies ideals and al
legiance to the spirit of truth.
Following this address the dele
gates were the guests of the Student-
Council of Meredith College at an
The second day was the big day
of the convention. It was marked
by many enjoyable features, among
them the address given l>\ Dr. Julia
Harris, head of the English depart
ment of Meredith, on the subject of
"Good English in College Journa
lism. She advised the delegates to
imitate the form of classics but by
all means to be original in expres
sion. The book, "This Side of Par
adise, by Scott Fitzgerald came in
for a bad time at this instance and
was flayed by Dr. Harris as an ex
ample of the worst kind of literature
that is being placed before the novel
reading public of today.
In the afternoon, Dr. Chas. P.
Weaver, head of the English depart
ment of Wake Forest College, lec
tured on the "Short Story in the Col
lege Magazine," basing his discourse
to a great extent on the stories of
Irvin S. Cobb. He pointed out how
Mr. Cobb has been able to take or
